When Today Begins

An eerie feeling comes across the universe

when twilight peeks his head

over the horizon

with a glimmer of soft diffused light.


The song birds begin singing

a delightful sound ,

alerting us of this miracle

when time changes frames.


A glorious beauty of light

filters through tiny crevices of our homes,

blessing us with a sense of peacefulness

inside our souls as we awake.


One spectacular display

showcasing the age of today,

the moment it first begins

enchanting us with its grace.

Imagine all of us living in peace

It's too beautiful to just be a dream

— John Lennon
